Just A Friend

Written by: Ashley Beaudre

I watch him as he holds her
and caresses her soft skin.
I was once the lucky one, 
but now I'm just a friend. 
He doesn't mean to hurt me, 
he tells me all the time. 
He doesn't know it kills me 
that he's no longer mine.
I know I should be thankful
it ended without pain. 
But why does it break my heart
every time I hear her name?
Then it finally happened. 
She broke his heart in two.
He cried on my shoulder, 
and I knew what I had to do.
It was hard but I convinced her
to give him another try.
Their puppy love fades all too soon, 
but my true love never dies.
